Happy endings

Akershus Fortress, Oslo, Norway

I do not know what people prefer

I can say for myself, I do not like to suffer

At the end of a book thoroughly enjoyed

I do not like to finish feeling that a void

Has been left- happy endings I like to see

Thought they might exist only in fantasy

Tragic endings leave me dissatisfied

Poetic license, I think, could be utilized

To give a positive spin to all works of fiction

Since real life already has a predilection

For partial, unhappy, unfinished endings

I want fiction to eliminate these things

I like those books where the curtain drops

After all ends are tied, all ambiguity stops

The story has reached a happy conclusion

The protagonists at least have an illusion

Of a perfect future filled with happiness

Their trials and tribulations are put to rest

Do I read fairy tales, you might ask me

The answer is yes, that’s what I want to see-

Adult versions of fairy tales where characters pretend

To live happily ever after at the end!
